Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) October 16, 2012
Johnny B. Truant, co-host of the highly irreverent Self Publishing Podcast with Sean Platt and David Wright – prolific authors of Yesterday’s Gone and several other serialized fiction titles – has revealed the strategies that have helped him recently write and publish a complete book – the dark horror farce, Fat Vampire – in less than a month.
Platt and Wright are “Kings of the Serial” known for publishing a new title each week, and haven’t missed a single week since starting on January 10, 2012. For the first time, Truant has kept pace.
Johnny says the secret is easy, and the same one he, Wright and Platt preach to their audience at the Self Publishing Podcast each week: Hard work, consistency, and writing FAST.
“Writers looking for a magic formula are usually the same writers who aren’t getting things done,” Truant said. “Anyone can do it, there’s no magic involved, only hard work.”
Truant credits his ability to move from concept to full execution as quickly as he did to working with Platt and Wright weekly on the podcast.
“It’s like having my own Mastermind group,” Truant proudly says of working with the recently published 47North authors. He gets to pick their brain and think out loud as the trio discuss ways to improve processes, amplify flow, and bond with the ever-growing audience that comes from publishing a new title each week.
“Writing a book isn’t easy, but as I learned from the Art of War: DO THE WORK,” Truant explains. “Sean and Dave are crazy busy cranking out title after title, and I figure if they can do I sure as [heck] can!”
Platt has as many as 15 titles in production at one time, and says he’s able to do this because he’s focused, but it’s not something everyone can do.
“I don’t think what I do is necessarily smart, but it does keep my busy brain happy. For new authors, I always suggest starting with one title – the one you’re most passionate about – then working on that and that only, until it’s done.”
Speed hasn’t affected quality. Johnny’s book may have gone from concept to full execution in less than a month, but it’s already earning 5-star reviews and requests for a sequel, which Truant is happy to write.
For interested writers, Truant has articulated his 29-Day formula in great detail, and published it on his site for free.
Indie publishing often means going fast, Truant shows you how to get there without sacrificing quality.
